Cool Holdings, Inc. — the parent company of Simply Mac, the largest Apple Premier Partner in the U.S. — has reopened two more of its Simply Mac stores that had been closed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The first store to reopen was the Simply Mac store in Eugene, Oregon. For the past 10 years, the Eugene store was located about five miles northwest of the University of Oregon Campus. Cool Holdings took the opportunity at the end of the lease term at that location to move to a new site on East 13th Avenue that is directly across from the campus.
The new store is also immediately adjacent to The Duck Store, the official bookstore of the University of Oregon that has been serving students since 1920. This new Simply Mac store is the result of a collaboration with The Duck Store, which is also the lessor of the property.
The second store to reopen was the Simply Mac store in Orlando, Florida. This store is located in the Orlando International Premium Outlets at 4951 International Drive. It is only two miles from Universal Studios Theme Park and ten miles from Walt Disney World Resort.
Cool Holdings has reopened 40 stores in 19 states so far. The company has 76 brick-and-mortar stores in the U.S.
